Today my handmade card is universal but I made it because I have a Confirmation party to go to. I know that brown and black are not the most upbeat colors but it is for a boy and I feel that I trouble making man cards. I thought that there would be no questions with this one that it could be manly. Today everything used to make this cards if from Stampin Up. Right now I am in a tearing phase as you can see every card or idea I have come up with I tore something on each one. The brown card stock for the card is Chocolate Chip. Both of the stamps I used are from the same set which is called All I Have Seen. I then stamped the words and the leaf image on Close To Cocoa paper and tore around each shape. Next I placed them on black cardstock and tore around that to make another layer. The picture is done but I then added another layer under the words which is the Close To Cocoa paper again. I used Basic Black ink. Before I glued both shapes on the card I took a cotton ball and dabbed it on the black ink pad and gently rubbed around the edges of the card to give it a vintage kind of look. I then glued both stamped images down. Now we are finished. I hope you enjoyed my handmade card idea.
